Week 1: Design Planning

Our bloggers reveal the room they are making over and show you their design inspiration.

Week 2: Room Prep

Check out how the bloggers are preparing their space for their makeover.

Painting is underway and I’m loving this Satin Black color…but only on my built-ins.  Kind of a bold feature wall while the rest of the room is a slightly silver/grey white.  I am planning to add to my cabinet base and turn them into the full floor to ceiling built-ins I always imagined for them. This is going to make a gorgeous feature in this room, and building this unit myself from some lumber leftover from past projects will keep me under budget so I can splurge on a few decorative items.  Follow along and watch the room transformation.

Week 3 : Transformation

Sneak peek of the bloggers room transformation.

Faux Natural can be seen throughout my living room from the paint colors to the hand painted pillows, art and vases.  You can see the full makeover here.
